Reading Partners

About the organization

Reading Partners is a national literacy nonprofit that engages community volunteers and AmeriCorps service members to support elementary-aged students on their path toward reading proficiency. Our dedicated volunteers come from diverse backgrounds and life experiences and provide bi-weekly one-on-one tutoring to students, either in person or through our new online tutoring system. Our traditional, in-person program is proven to help children master the reading fundamentals necessary to become confident learners across all subjects. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Reading Partners urgently evolved program delivery to ensure students continue to receive the critical literacy tutoring in any learning environment.

Duties

The AmeriCorps Distance Tutoring Coordinator plays a critical role in our school-based operations within the region. In response to Covid-19, Reading Partners will implement a distance tutoring program, for which the AmeriCorps Distance Tutoring Coordinator will serve in collaboration with other AmeriCorps members and/or Reading Partners staff as a team in order to deliver the program. This role may lead all student support services to ensure their success in the program. The Distance Tutoring Coordinator also serves as the lead logistical and family, student, and volunteer engagement support, ensuring all parties are equipped to attend and successfully complete their sessions. They accomplish this by coordinating and coaching tutors, communicating with, coordinating, and supporting families, observing distance tutoring sessions for student needs, and maintaining data systems related to distance tutoring. Distance Tutoring Coordinators will also provide direct technical support, as needed, to students and families while implementing the distance tutoring program. This is an exciting new and adapted role that supports new programming created in response to Covid-19 and is an opportunity to serve and get involved in a literacy program that works! s
